San Francisco 49ers fans may not be getting a Super Bowl parade this week, but they will be getting something else: free chocolate pudding. The Jell-O company will be handing out 10,000 cups of pudding to the citizens of San Francisco on Tuesday to help 49ers fans cope with Sunday's Super Bowl loss to Baltimore.
"We don't want fans to be miserable," Jell-O senior brand manager Greg Gallagher told ESPN.com.
The 10,000 cups of pudding will be given away at five locations in San Francisco between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. PT. If you're going to be in or around San Francisco on Tuesday, you can find out where the free pudding's going to be by checking out Jell-O's free pudding site: funthingsup.com.
San Francisco fans who don't like pudding may like something else the Jell-O company is offering: an app for Google Chrome that will block out any and all mentions of Baltimore, meaning you won't have to read on and on about the Ravens' 34-31 Super Bowl win.
According to Jell-O, the Google Chrome app, once installed, will "replace all words and images related to Baltimore with things you'd much rather see. Like puppies."
Chocolate pudding isn't quite the Lombardi Trophy, but it is a nice consolation prize for 49ers fans who have an affinity for the tasty treat.
